FORT VALLEY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — The White House selected a Fort Valley State University student to be an HBCU Scholar. At only 19 years old, Taylor Dorsey will be one of fifteen students from Georgia named to this program.

Dorsey is a junior majoring in political science and says she’s excited to learn so much in her new role.

She will travel to Washington, D.C. in September for the HBCU Week national annual conference.  That’s where she’ll learn more about entrepreneurship, innovation, personal and professional development.

Dorsey says she will attend meetings prior to the conference and she hopes to implement what she learns into her everyday life.

“After I am going to be an ambassador on the campus, so I’ll be hosting different events on campus about what we did in the conference, like the entrepreneurship, innovation, leadership, personal development classes, things like that,” Dorsey said.

Dorsey says she’s also thankful for her family and everyone who has helped her achieve this honor.
